Hello all,

Is there any way to download the linked 4-24-1978 Dead show?
I believe there is another copy of it that can be downloaded on archive, but it was recorded with a mono personal cassette player and I would prefer the one recorded from the soundboard. Any help would be appreciated. I'm new, sorry if I posted this in the wrong place. Thank you.

No problem newbie. Here is the scoop.

About Grateful Dead concerts on the Archive

Audience-made Grateful Dead concert recordings are available as downloads while available soundboards are accessible in streaming format only.

The Grateful Dead is being separated from the Live Music Archive into its own collection (with its own forum) to avoid confusion about lossless availability. The metadata and reviews for shows and recordings, even those not available for regular download, will remain available for those who maintain direct links. No filesets have been deleted from the Archive; certain items are simply not public now. Prior to our completing the changes, text files are easily referenced at a separate database.

At this time, the Grateful Dead collection is not open to public uploads. The Grateful Dead Internet Archive Project (GDIAP) will continue its direct management of this collection for the time being.

As far as we know, there has been no change to standard GD fan trading. It is common for bands to have policies that differ between fan trading, versus archiving here.

I have said show and would be happy to burn it for you, I live two miles from the Illinois State Campus where the show was performed. My e-mail is
